Camera on Cat 3 wire

I have a Cat 3 wire buried 350' to the entrance gates for the gate opener and intercom keypad. Can I run a camera at one end and a monitor at the other end on the spare twisted cat 3 wires. I think I have two sets of wires not used.
I have seen devices advertised that might work called Baulns, (spelling might be wrong)? I have 24V DC (two 12V batteries) at the gates+120V AC at the gate.

There are adapters just for the purpose of using Cat5/Cat3 wiring. But, I will have to d some looking to find them again. Most cameras only use 12VDC. I'll do some looking this weekend to find out more about those adapters, I have to remember where I saw them.
